5:44 am
in together, what should they be talking about? kurt: communication should center around key tension points , usually that relates to debt. everyone has a philosophy and that can create tension. how we manage the cash flow, where is the money going. everyone has priorities and passions related to using money properly. some of the more proactive decisions about life goals and what we want to move toward as a couple. those are three crucial areas. focusing on the facts is important. eric: you don't want to mislead them down the road or you will be in trouble. kurt: exactly. sometimes all ball gets built and we are stuck in the circular pattern -- sometimes a wall gets built. one of the key issues that can bust us through the wall is to
5:45 am
the cash flow statement, net worth statement, some of the basic stuff i've talked about. that is an important part if those can be looked at without judgment. and expectations. eric: there will be some tensions and disagreements, how do you get through that? kurt: setting up a weekly time that is specific to look over financial documents i have alluded to can be one way. opposites usually attract so there's usually one person that's really into the facts and gathering facts and organizing. it is important to make sure that person is not alone in that process. the other individual needs to come alongside and tell me what you are seeing and noticing. setting up a regular weekly time for that i think is one crucial way to bounce through.
5:46 am
financial.
5:47 am
at's all this nonsense about balls? pink balls, blue, yellow, red. it's hard to keep the whole thing straight. and all these so-called deals? well, they come with a lot of deal breakers. like when you leave the city the signal goes weak. u.s. cellular built a network to give you a stronger signal where the other guys don't. and as for deals? how's $300 back for every line you switch? $300! no ball nonsense. get $300 per line and a stronger signal,

5:52 am
in this sweeping saga of revenge and redemption. dicaprio is winless in five previous nominations, but six will be his lucky number. brie larson is my pick for best actress in "room", a harrowing tale of a mother and her five year old son jack, played by jabob tremblay, who are held captive by jack's father in a squalid shack they call room. this is larson's first academy award nomination and she will bring home the gold in a heart tugging and hear breaking performance. in the toughest category of the night, my choice for best picture is "spotlight", the true story of the boston globe's investigative team called spotlight that uncovered widespread child sex abuse by catholic priests in the greater boston archdiocese. it won the globe the 2003 pulizer prize for investigative reporting and is my pick to win best picture. of course, nothing's for sure. but, one thing for sure, with chris rock hosting, it promises to be a wild and unpredictable night.

7:43 am
relationship. eric: so whether they are moving in together or getting married, what should they specifically be talking about? kurt: a very good question. of course, communication should center around some of those key tension points. usually that relates to how we are using debt. everyone has a philosophy of that and that can create some tension. how we are managing the cash flow, where is the money going. everyone has priorities and passions related to using their money properly. then of course, some of them are proactive decisions about what are our life goals and what do we want to be moving toward as a couple. those are three crucial areas. focusing in on the facts is a very important part. eric: you do not want to mislead them down the road. otherwise you will be in trouble. you have to be honest. kurt: exactly. sometimes when that wall gets built and we realize we are stuck in the same circular pattern in a relationship as it
7:44 am
issues that can bust us through that wall and into the next place is to have a renewed focus on the facts. that deals with the cash flow statement the net worth , statement, some of the stuff i have talked about four years. that is an important component because those facts can be looked at without judgment and without creating that expectation. eric: even if you are communicating well, there is going to be some tensions. how do you bust through that? kurt: setting up a weekly time that is specific to look over some of the specific financial documents, that can be one way for people to do it. usually in a couple opposites , usually attract so there is usually one person who is into the facts, gathering them and organizing them. it is very important to make sure that person is not alone in that process. the other individual needs to come alongside and say, tell me what you are seeing, tell me what you are noticing.
7:45 am
time -- a regular weekly time for that is a crucial way to bust through.
